Adding Fortran codes to scipy_core contradicts with its design idea.

Namely, the modules from scipy_core were factored from the earlier scipy
package in order to resolve packaging issues of scipy and f2py2e -- see
scipy/PACKAGERS.txt. The solution was that
  scipy_core
  f2py2e
  scipy
should be installed strictly in the given order, so, scipy_core may
contain only pure Python or C extension modules.

So, could futil.f be moved to somewhere under scipy?
